How To Get Elected - Poem by Jim Yerman

Have you heard of the politician from Arizona, Scott Fistler was his name
Who came up with a plan to get elected in this political end game.

Mr. Fistler as Mr. Fistler lost 2 elections on his upward political climb
So he decided not to change his philosophy but to change his name this time.

Yes, his name, Scott Fistler, wasn't getting him elected, a point he sadly conceded
So he chose Cesar Chavez, hoping it would give him the edge he needed.

I'm not sure Mr. Fistler understands what the primary election key is,
And he's assuming the voters in his district are as ignorant as he is.

But I have more faith in people, they will see through this man's show
And hopefully Mr. Fistler/Chavez will lose his third election in a row.

But Mr. Fistler I come to your rescue, there's a way out, have no fear
I know what you can change your name to ensuring victory next year.

There was a primary in Las Vegas whose results you're going to love
8 candidates entered and 8 candidates lost to the winner....none of the above!
